Review:
Praise for 4th Edition:

"Superb work of historiographic synthesis ... A penetrating analysis of the forces that have shaped South Africa, and
is written in a style that is engaging." Cape Times

Of the second edition:

"A masterly summary of the major themes which have gone into the making of modern South Africa and of the debates which historians have had about them. It is clear and succinct; marvellously well–researched; absolutely up–to–date; and easily accessible to the general reader. It is at once the best book of its kind available."
Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History

"Nigel Worden′s book has a good chronology, excellent bibliography and it certainly enriches the literature on South Africa."
Africa World Review

"Good, scholarly one–volume overviews of South African history are not plentiful. The Making of Modern South Africa, is already proving invaluable to students and lecturer alike because it is so up to date... the book is admirably organized, remarkably comprehensive and bound to be widely used."
The English Historical Review

"Worden′s presentation is always erudite and balanced. He is to be congratulated in providing a masterly history of modern South Africa which should have a wide audience"
The Australian Association for Maritime History

"It is well written and balanced in its presentation of the South African history, such as the inclusion of the importance of gender and environmental history."
West Africa

Of the third edition:

"That Worden explains the major themes in South African history in such a thin volume while remaining concise, readable and balanced, is quite an achievement for a book that can serve as an excellent introductory text for history and political courses on modern South Africa."
Journal of Modern African Studies

From the Back Cover:
In The Making of Modern South Africa, Nigel Worden provides a comprehensive and up–to–date introduction to the key themes and debates central to an understanding of the region.

The book examines the major issues in South Africa′s history: the colonial conquests of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; the establishment of racism, segregation, and apartheid; the spirit of reform, resistance and repression of the 1980s; and the eventual break up of institutional apartheid and founding of democracy.

For this fourth edition, a completely rewritten final chapter takes the story from 1994 to the present, alongside new and revised maps and an updated further reading section. Professor Worden places the new South Africa in a wide historical context and provides a sharp, analytical overview for all those interested in modern South African history and politics.
